I'm fairly new to the city and am currently looking into using a printmaking studio, either through a school or otherwise. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Hi there. I'm in the south bay (San Jose area). There are plenty of possibilities in and around the city as far as I know. The first the comes to mind is the Kala institute in Berkeley (www.kala.org). They also have nice classes there. A bit further south is foothill college but that might be too far for you. And I'm sure that at the SF Art institute there are possibilities. Oh, and of course - there is the SF Center for the book which you absolutely have to check out. I think the URL is www.sfcb.org or such.

    HOpe that gets you started. If not, feel free to ping me directly :)

  • There are a few that I know about. Probably more.

    One studio where I have not printed, but I have some friends who do: is the Graphic Arts Workshop
    gaw.zpub.com/index.php

    Another place where there is a great press and cheap classes is City College
    www.ccsf.edu/

    And finally, I have taken some classes from Katie Gilmartin in SomaArts. She has a great press in her studio and if you're a student, she has a few open printing times per year. But mostly it's for classes.

    cheers!
